This month’s Kiwi Crate came with this little bonus from Family Fun magazine. Three fun bonus projects!



Every month, Kiwi Crate includes a copy of explore! magazine. My son loves this magazine! He always wants to try all of the activities in it, and it also has some cute comics and short articles that are perfect for his reading level. This month’s theme is “fun with swings”!


Kiwi Crate seems to have recently transitioned from 2-3 small projects to one larger project. This month’s project is a paint pendulum!


Here’s a peek at the instructions. They are always complete and easy to follow.


These are the supplies that were provided. Everything was included that we needed this month.


This is my son’s completed paint pendulum. Sorry for the picture of our much-loved craft table, but any time there’s a mess or potential mess, you’re probably going to see the craft table. The paint goes into the plastic cup and the paper goes under the pendulum. Then my son removes the cap and swings the pendulum, creating art on the paper below.




These are the first three paintings my son made with his paint pendulum. What a fun idea! And a complete mess! We did the paintings outside, though, so it all worked out fine.

VerdictKiwi Crate is so awesome! My eight-year-old and I both love it! It is consistently top-notch in every regard – printed materials, supplies, project selection – everything is always really well done. The projects can usually be completed in about an hour, and it’s honestly one of our funnest hours all month. I would say at $20 per month, it’s an incredible value!
